Privacy Statement

Commitment to Privacy
The Foundation of the CMSC (“FCMSC” or “The Foundation”) is committed to protecting the privacy of your personal information. To better protect your privacy, we provide this Privacy Policy explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. The following statement explains the information gathering and disseminating practices for our website at (the “Site”). This policy may change from time to time, so check back periodically.  Throughout this policy, “we,” us,” and “our” will mean FCMSC.  This policy does not apply to the practices of persons or entities that FCMSC does not control, manage or employ.

The Information We Collect
This Privacy Policy applies to information collected by or submitted to the FCMSC, a nonprofit organization, through the website. The website provides information about the FCMSC and allows users to make donations and begin the grant application/request process online. The information collected on the website falls into two generic categories: (1) information voluntarily submitted; and (2) information gathered via electronic means.

Information Voluntarily Submitted
The FCMSC only gathers “personally identifiable information” (information that relates to an identified individual) if you voluntarily submit such information to us through registration forms, feedback forms and/ordonation forms. The types of personally identifiable information voluntarily submitted on our website may include your name, age, gender, company, title, department, address, city, state/province, zip/postal code, country, phone and fax numbers, email addresses, and URLs. You can always choose not to provide personally identifiable information, but if you do not provide such information, you may not be able to take advantage of the features of the FCMSC website (i.e., receipt of information from the FCMSC). We may use your personally identifiable information in the following ways:

To supply news and information regarding the FCMSC and the programs it sponsors.

To respond to your questions or comments sent to us via email or postal mail.

To process grant proposals or requests and donations using such information.

To comply with any valid legal process such as a subpoena, statute or court order and to counter any attempted breach of security of our website, or a threat to you or others.

The FCMSC will only send you the information described above if you have opted to receive such information during any of the registration processes. The FCMSC will not rent, sell or lease personally identifiable information to any third party unless we have received your permission.

Information Gathered via Electronic Means
The FCMSC also collects “non-personally identifiable information” (information that does not identify a specific individual) through the use of Internet Protocol tracking, log files and/or cookie technology.

We register your Internet Protocol address when you visit the website to help diagnose possible technical problems and to administer website quality. We do not use Internet Protocol addresses or click stream data to personally identify users. Log files (files listing every request made to the server) are used to statistically determine which areas of our website users prefer and to better prepare future site content based on the interests of our users. We do not track the usage patterns of individual users, but rather the overall performance of each page on the site. In some parts of the website we may use cookies, which are bits of information that are stored on your computer when you visit a site. Cookies allow the website to recognize you and, among other things, load your page more quickly. If you find this objectionable, you can set your browser to refuse cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent.

Links To Other Sites
Our website may contains links to other websites. Please note that when you click on one of these links, you are moving to another website. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of these linked sites as their privacy policies may differ from ours.

Security Policy
Protecting your privacy and your information is our top priority. FCMSC and/or its subcontractors institute various electronic and administrative safeguards to protect your information from unauthorized access, including firewall technologies to help protect your data from hackers and other unwanted visitors.  Only those employees of the FCMSC and/or our business partners who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. In the event that we collect your credit card information, we will additionally utilize Secure Sockets Layer Software to encrypt your credit card information you input.  Despite use of these safeguards, there are inherent risks in transmission of electronic information.  We cannot guarantee and do not represent that your information will always be secure from unauthorized access.
We also may use a managed hosting provider and/or other subcontractors to assist us with the provision and maintenance of the Sites.  If we do, we will impose on such provider confidentiality obligations for the treatment of information.

Accessing and Updating Information
The FCMSC strives to maintain the accuracy of user records and only collects personal information that is relevant for the purposes for which it is used. If you have any questions about what information we currently hold about you or your organization or would like to make updates or changes, please contact us at

The FCMSC will not use or share your personally identifiable information in ways unrelated to the ones described in this Privacy Policy without first letting you know and offering you a choice. If at any time you would like to stop receiving information from the FCMSC, you may send an email stating your decision to

Our Commitment to Children’s Privacy
Protecting children on the Internet is very important. For that reason, the FCMSC does not intentionally collect information at our website from those the FCMSC actually knows are under 13, and no parts of our website are structured to attract anyone under 13.

At some point the FCMSC may wish to assign or transfer its obligations and rights under this Privacy Policy to a third party. You agree that the FCMSC may do so, on the condition that the FCMSC first requires such third party, in writing, to either abide by this Privacy Policy or notify you of any changes to this Privacy Policy and allow you to remove your name from its database.

Changes to This Privacy Policy
The FCMSC reserves the right to make changes to this Privacy Policy at any time to clarify or improve our policy, as long as such changes do not decrease the protection already provided by these provisions. Changes will be posted to the website and the “Last update” date will reflect the date of the most recent changes. Your continued use of the FCMSC website following the posting of changes to these terms constitutes acceptance of those changes.

Your Acceptance of These Terms
By using any of the FCMSC website, you signify your acceptance of our Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to this policy, please do not use our website.

If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy, please email us at or contact Webmaster, FCMSC, 3 University Plaza Drive, Suite 116, Hackensack, NJ 07601.  201-487-1050.
